Yahoo is closing down Geocities sometime this year. Wow, I am still storing some stuff in it and actually have a link on my blog's sidebar to my lyrics page there. I still have an Angelfire account, too. So I sign in today to see how much of it is worth saving. My whole site was under 10 megabytes, so I could email it all to myself if I really wanted to. The first thing I see is three .gif files named blue, green and grey. These were just 10x10 pixels of blue, green and grey, and I found them useful back when I hand coded pages of links. Those were the first things to go, along with several background .jpg files of a chain link fence, crumpled paper and some wood. Then i changed my index page to point to my blog, since it wasn't doing anything else.

Disenfanaticism - What happens when you find something you like being advertised in an icky way, like spam or pop-up ads. Netflix: you were the first.

Back on the Interweb

A few weeks ago my computer stopped letting me log on. It would get to the Welcome screen (which it should have bypassed) and when I select which acct I want to log in under, it would show the desktop for a few seconds and then immediately log out and go back to the welcome screen. I tried several things and was about to bring it in when I remembered that my cubicle neighbor suggested it might be a problem with my spyware/adware programs. I uninstalled them both and got back in last night!

Confession time: I am currently running Netscape and have ten different tabs open. Surprisingly, none of them are del.icio.us.

Minutes later, I get a 503 Service not available error while trying to post to my del.icio.us acct, hmm.

Even later, I got up to 13 tabs at once, but then I gave in and posted them all.

Del.icio.us is a social bookmarks manager. What does that mean? It means when you store a bookmark on your del.icio.us acct, others can see what you've bookmarked and how you tagged it (i.e. what categories you put it in). My page is here. You bookmark things by using some javascript written into the URL of one of your favorites. It's not as complicated as it may sound.
I recently lost most of my bookmarks in Netscape, and was looking for a way to manage them better anyway. The social aspect of del.icio.us can be seen on it's home page, which displays the most recent additions by all members. Another plus is that you can add and access your bookmarks from any computer.
